    This study compared the occupational interest patterns of technical specialists and R&D Managers. Our hypothesis was that R&D managers would be similar to technical specialists in the scientific/engineering domain, but exhibit comparatively higher levels in the managerial/organizational interest domain. The findings supported the hypothesis and indicated R&D managers reflect a... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this study was to examine the individual and organizational factors related to creativity for R&D professionals. The results suggest that the creative R&D professional differs somewhat from past profiles of innovative individuals. The creative individual may be more reflective with less need for external feedback than the innovator. The paper also discusses the role of... View full abstract»

    Effective project management requires that all planning and management control activities be fully integrated: planning must encompass operational, tactical, and strategic considerations; functionally oriented efforts must be properly blended into a unified whole; and project technical performance, cost, and schedule parameters must be integrated into a systemic composite. Viewed from this perspec... View full abstract»
